Secret RF uses fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy delivered through microneedles to reach the deeper layers of the skin. It can smoothen acne scar, shrink pores and reduce eye bag.
RF is a form of electrical energy, and it is used to carefully heat the skin dermis to 50 – 75 ºC which is the temperature required for the stimulation of collagen synthesis.
The micro-needles (25-pin) in Secret RF can be calibrated at various depths (0.5-3.5mm), allowing specific tailoring for different areas and concerns. E.g. thin skin areas at under eyes and forehead will require shallower penetration (0.5mm) compared to thicker skin areas like the cheeks (2mm).
During each shot of the treatment, the 25-pin micro-needles will create 25 microscopic punctures at the depth of choice (0-5-3.5mm). Then, RF energy delivered via the tiny needles deep into the skin dermis layer, transmitting heat to stimulate collagen and elastin. This subsequently rebuilds and strengthens the skin’s support system.
Secret RF has a single needle handpiece which can penetrate deep into the fat layer and deliver RF energy to induce lipolysis (fat melting). Hence it is effective in reducing eye bag fats, jowl fats and double chin fats.
It is also used for the subcision of acne scars. Subcision is a procedure to break and release the fibrotic strands that tether the scar down to the underlying tissue.
Secret RF is safe and can achieve significant results without the need of using aggressive skin resurfacing lasers or harsh chemical peels. Since the energy is delivered directly to the deeper dermis, damage to the skin’s surface is minimal, thus reducing visible downtime.
It takes one month to see improvement of acne scar, pores, eye bag or double chin.
Numbing cream application will takes 20-30 minutes, followed by another 10-15 minutes for the procedure. Dr Wong will adjust the energy level and depth accordingly to keep the discomfort at minimal.
Erythema (redness) for about half a day is expected. Over the next 4-5 days, some may have scab formation (wound crust) which is part of the healing process. The scab will fall naturally and not to be picked to avoid infection or prolonged downtime.
It depends on individual’s conditions which need to be assessed by our doctor. Ideally, patients should undergo 5 sessions, 1 month apart to achieve long-lasting results.
Cleanse your skin gently with cool water without scrubbing for the next 3-4 days. You should also avoid sun exposure for at least 1 week after the treatment.
